A colorant that becomes molecularly dispersed at some point during application to fiber and exhibits some degree of permanence. There are many application classes of dyes, including acid dyes, disperse dyes, reactive dyes, and natural dyes. Dyes may be generally divided into natural and synthetic types. Natural dyes are obtained from berries, flowers, roots, bark and more. Synthetic dyes are chemical compounds.
A colored substance (which is soluble) that is added to ink, paper and textiles. Generally speaking, dye colors are not permanent enough to be used for fine-art applications where long term lightfastness is required.
A colouring material that is totally dissolved in a liquid in order to make a stain that soaks into the wood instead of being left on top like a pigment.Dyes are transparent, and can make a deeply penetrating stain. Some dyes are not very lightfast.
As a colour layer, the dye allows the recording of information onto a CD-R. During the process of recording the laser alters the organic features of the dye and creates the information structure. The resulting playback quality is similar to one of a pre-recorded CD or CD-ROM.
A dye is a natural or synthetic substance used to colour something. Dyes are usually used in an aqueous solution, which will work on all porous surfaces. They are most often used to colour materials and fabrics.
(Sublimation Printing) The printing system that transfers colors from RGB, CMY, or CMYK computer files onto ribbons containing dyes that are heated and fused onto paper. Dye-sublimation printers are continuous- tone printers capable of producing photographic quality images.
